The best of the best
If you are not reading these blogs, you absolutely should be. These are the blogs that I have fallen in love with
♥ legalnomads.com – Unerringly powerful in-depth perspectives on travel destinations, intelligently written content, and significantly unique ideas. Legal Nomads is written by a lawyer turned traveler who really gets under the skin of the culture and customs of the countries she visits. Great photography and a wonderful section on food from around the world.
♥ candaceroserardon.com – Eloquent narratives, rich descriptions, and a wonderful sense of locality. Candace Rardon’s blog is a haven of beautiful photography, thoughtful quotes, and captivating stories that leave you with an amazing sense of people and places.
♥ theartofslowtravel.com – Blissfully honest detailed descriptions interspersed with vibrant and stunning travel photography, a fantastic concept, and beautiful website design. The art of slow travel is lesson in how to really enjoy life at a slow pace, reminding readers that travel is not about seeing everything you possibly can all at once, but taking time to enjoy and savor each and every experience.
♥ grrrltraveler.com - the mecca of travel information. Expect detailed and quirky advice for backpackers, as well as stories, photography and guides with a more off-the-beaten path approach. Loaded with some of the most ingenious self-survival tricks on the internet, Grrrl Traveler is both inspirational and empowering.
